I can't return parts that were purchased new to an ebay seller and have been put on the car and driven on. It was a brake kit, with drop spindles. It wasn't even my credit card that bought the junk.
I'm eating that one. I'll try and sell it on craigslist locally when I replace it.
Again, this all comes back to a guy with a mentality that always goes with "you don't need all of that, just buy the cheap one".
The cheap one just wasted $1,500 and now I'm back where I started.
I want this car to confidently rail around canyon curves, motor around mountain roads, and stop like a vette. I don't want a race car, but I do want a car that I can drive without getting a pit in my stomach coming down a steep, curvy mountain road with multiple 25 mph corners. Applying further bandaids to something that is not going to work for me in the end is just wasting more cash.
While I'm at this step, I'm going to have the entire under body and frame cleaned up and painted.
